Best Natural Lawn Care Tips for Spring

With spring’s arrival, it’s time to get your yard in optimal shape. Approximately half of the homeowners who spruce up their outdoor spaces spend at least six hours or more per week there. Since you plan to spend more time outdoors, you can either do this work yourself or hire professional natural lawn care services. If you decide to take on the work yourself, here are the best natural lawn care tips for spring to get your yard in the best shape possible.

Clear Debris and Rake Leaves

The first thing you will want to do for your yard is to rake leaves and remove any debris or fallen twigs. Your lawn may have become infected by snow mold disease during winter. Clearing debris will help break up matted grass patches to reduce the damage.

Test pH Levels

Healthy soil pH levels are essential for your lawn. Your soil should have a slightly acidic to neutral pH ranging between 6.2 to 7.0 for healthy grass growth. This will also reduce the need for constant weed control. You can contact natural lawn care services or your local county cooperative extension to test your soil or buy a soil kit yourself.

Fertilize Your Lawn

After the harsh winter season, your lawn can become starved for nutrients. You can use a natural lawn fertilizer high in phosphorus to give it the proper nutrition for healthy growth. Contact natural lawn care services if you need help selecting the right organic fertilizer for your lawn.

Give Your Lawn the Proper Hydration

Many homeowners tend to overwater their lawn. During the spring, natural rainfall should be enough irrigation. If not, you can apply an inch of water once per week. Water each area deeply for about 30 minutes no more than two or three times per week. This will help encourage strong and healthy roots.

Taking proper care of your lawn will ensure you can enjoy it all spring and summer. Natural lawn care helps keep you and your family safe from harmful chemicals. These chemicals can not only hurt your health but your lawn’s health as well. If you need help with organic lawn care, contact us today to receive a free quote.
